Gray Wolf as Totem - 03 by Ravenari Gray Wolf as Totem - 03 by Ravenari
Gray Wolf as Totem

Perhaps one of the most common totem animals in existence! And this is reinforced by the fact that this is now the third time that it has been requested in one of my request lists! I think I'm going to put an embargo on gray wolf requests for the next one!

The Gray Wolf is often called the Pathfinder, and the expression in this picture expresses this animal beautifully. 

I must ask though, what do the blue circles represent? I have noticed in your other works, they are usually in a bar of sorts, and are layered behind or beside the animal. However, this picture makes it seem sad if the wolf is encircled in something, or looking into it. Is this for a reason?

The circles tend to represent chakra connections / energy connections. :)

Nice work! I like the touches of yellowish/creamish colours in the fur to really bring out the lighting and texture. =)

I'm mightily impressed by how you manage to draw this animal as a totem so often without repeating yourself visually. It seems to have a subtly different feel each time.

This is incredible. I absolutely adore your work. I'm over on LJ (username is nokturnel) and I've been watching your icon posts! I need to go back through and find the icon you did of this one (or was it your other grey wolf?)

Anyway, your work is absolutely incredible. Hopefully one of these days I can order a print. I love to have some of these up on my walls.


Amazing!

This one won't be made as an icon until I've got another 20 animals together, I'm sorry! I do them in batches - but if you like, you can make an avatar of it in the meantime.

I've added you on Livejournal - I'm Moonvoice there. :)

AudioBoxRock Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2009
If you're sure you don't mind, I may make it into an icon, I'll credit you fully of course ^_^

Thank you so much for adding me on LJ! I've added you as well ^_^ It's so nice to meet others who share so many common interests.

I must say, your profile on LJ is intimidating! Not it a bad way at all though. It just seems as though you have so much accomplished. It'll be really great getting to know you, thank you.

Oh and it seems as though this has come at a great time. Recently I've been wanting to get into the study of Shamanism, I've always had an interest in it, but recently I've had a very strong pull towards it. You're more than welcome to put me on any and every filter in your journal though, as you may have guessed, I'm an extremely open minded person and love learning about absolutely everything.

Sorry for talking so much, thanks again!

I've added you to my 'life' filter, and my shamanism one, I might change my profile too and make it a bit less scary! :) And I don't mind regarding the icon at all.

AudioBoxRock Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009
Oh no no! Don't change it! It's not scary, when I looked at it I thought "wow! she's accomplished so much!" and it was kind of intimidating but like I said, not in a bad way ^_^

I've just made it a bit shorter! And put all the forum stuff at the bottom, instead of at the top. *smiles* Thanks for letting me know, I know you didn't mean anything bad by it, but as I like to talk to all sorts of people, I don't want to be intimidating people with my accomplishments! Sometimes I let my ego get in the way of making friends. ;)

Yay a wolf! At least now that you've done it people can't annoy you anymore with requests for it! xD I really like the detail you did with the fur.

As of today another two people already have! It's like when I say 'look, I've drawn it lots now, leave me alone,' people think 'oh, she wants to draw it again!'

*cries hysterically* Lol.

It's not that I don't like wolves, I love them. I'm just bored of drawing them.
